league baseball. mlb is considering a lifetime ban for alex rodriguez and the yankees and others for eight more players. a big sports business story. duke, good to see you for stopping over. i guess the basic question everybody in this town is talking about today is will alex rodriguez ever play baseball again? >> he will reach an agreement. originally thought he would fight lifetime suspension if he got it. i think he will try to cut a deal. connell: 38 years old already. >> knee surgery as well, let me keep him off the field as well. tough to come back after basically all of next year and then at age 28, let alone 38 with all these injuries. connell: record revenues last year, so you could argue as popular as it was in the height of the steroid era, that said as they come down hard on these players, what do you think the effect will be on the game next year? >> i think on the game of baseball and other sports. let's say alex rodriguez is banned for life, does that put pressure on other sports to follow suit and make their penalties, formants enhancing drugs tougher? if we look
masters, have a good day. [laughter] cheryl: well, the business, the business of baseball, mlb commissioner bud selig's call on just how hard baseball will come down on a-rod and others in the steroid scandal expected at any moment. no guidance at this point, but we are expecting something from bud selig. millions on the line for a-rod and these other players mixed up with the florida lab. this dates back to january. we've got foxbusiness.com senior correspondent dun son pyle and charles payne. charles, he is still owed at this point $8.5 million, charles, from the yankees, that's for the rest of his salary, another 28 million for the last four years of his contract. all of that is in jeopardy now, correct? >> well, it's all in jeopardy particularly if there's a lifetime ban. apparently, that's one of the things they've been trying to negotiate with him, if he would sent a deal, you know, whatever their deal is and not fight back, then he would still be able to resume his career after next season, if not, they'll try to come down harder. we're essentially talking about a gigant
a tough season. could mlb do something, lower ticket prices to acknowledge this mess and show fans how important they are and how appreciated they are? >> on a team by basis they certainly can the milwaukee brewers gave that to give $10 food and beverage credit who bought tickets to games for brought the price down dramatically, value of the ticket dramatically. that was a great move on the part of the brewers. i don't think we'll see a great deal of that. baseball's attendance is pretty close to what it was last year. this is not likely to reduce attendance. they have to get peds, performance-enhancing drugs out of baseball. lori: will it make baseball boring if you don't have sluggers and low-scoring game. >> i remember in the 1970's watching pitchers like tom seaver and bob gibson and just loving the games. lori: there you go. >> people come out, they come out for the competition. what they don't like and really dislike tremendously are some people trying to get an advantage by using performance-enhancing drugs, illegal drugs, to benefit themselves and that's a real problem. lori: t
me, san diego. >> keep it classy. >> keep it classy, san diego. >> mlb is prepared to ban a-rod for life. >> oh. >> know who is happiest about this, yankee fans. they want him to go away. >> all right. >> let's go right now to chief white house correspondent for politico mike allen here with the morning playbook. mike, the president was facing some resistance from house democrats yesterday over his possible pick for the fed chairman during yesterday's meeting. of course we had a lot of congressmen not wanting larry summers to be the next fed chairman and, in fact, one congressman, walked to the microphone and said larry summers, bad choice. president obama reportedly told the session not to believe everything they read on-line and said he was being made out to be a, quote, progressive whipping boy and added summers was the rock of gill bra tar to try to work through the policies and turn the economy around and i'm not going to stand idly by and let his name disparaged and reputation trashed because people have a political agenda about who should or should not be the chairman
growth hormone over the course of multiple years. mlb officials also alleging rodriguez attempted to cover up his violations and obstruct their investigation. rodriguez says he'll appeal. in the past, rodriguez has also denied a connection to the former head of biogenesis and taking peds from the clinic, but when asked more than once to clarify on monday, rodriguez dodged those questions. >> we will have a forum to discuss all of that and we will talk about it then. >> reporter: well, under the rules and regulation, rodriguez is allowed to keep playing while he appeals, but his all-star career forever tainted as well as the world of baseball. chris? >> appreciate the reporting from there, jason. >>> what does this mean for a-rod and for major league baseball? let's bring in rachel nichols joining us from rochester, new york. let's go through the punch points here. in perspective terms, what did yesterday mean historically for major league baseball? >> yeah, this is a big step forward for major league baseball. it basically told players we will find you. we don't need a positive te
haven't seen my brothers in a long time. >> mlb expected to announce rodriguez's punishment tomorrow. a-rod's attorneys have said he will appeal any suspension. >>> boy, is it a beautiful day in new york city. >> it is. >> temperate, too. >> here is rick. >> beautiful and temperattemper. heb how hot it was for that streech. >> it was awful. could barely breeze. >> i would take the three weeks of hot weather to have this nice stretch now. good trade. it's been spectacular across a lot of the great lakes and the northeast. temperatures well below averages. looks like the pattern will continue for a while. take a look at the werth maps and show you what is going on for your day today. across the east, another nice one. we'll see showers pop up across the southeast. the big problem with rain is across areas of kansas with with very heavy rain falling overnight. up to five inches in a couple hours. that's pulling to the east. they saw a lot of o rain yesterday. big problems there. down across the southwest where we've been seeing the monsoonal activity, take a look at this video out of arizo

. joining me now sports attorney steve olnick. >> thanks for having me. >> we don't know how much the mlb has on rodriguez but rye are there rumors of such a lengthy suspension? >> what happens is normally and typically how they get suspended is through especially in this particular instance is through the joint drug agreement but now the major league baseball is getting a little crafty and trying to go through the collective bargaining agreement whereby they're able to essentially suspend him for anything that is detrimental to the league so the process is we're going to suspend based off this evidence that who knows like you said they have in which they can have the right to suspend him. >> okay, and we know that a-rod has been, you know, quite very vociferous about that happening and what that implies if it happens. that said, steve, if he is found guilty of using performance-enhancing drugs, how much money does he still have coming at him, and can you understand how the yankees would feel like really, we have to pay him upwards of maybe $100 million for nothing? >> correct. and that's
completely, no pub intended. >> it's not going to be a clean case what mlb is working here, we don't know the quality of their evidence, we don't know the quality of their witnesses and how this ends up. the mediator has the power here, he can settle in between. he can remove the suspension, which i would say would be pretty highly unlikely. he could uphold the suspension or settle somewhere in between, which is where i think most fans and people following this story feel where it should end up. you get the feeling if they did meet somewhere in between, it would be difficult for rodriguez. >> let's talk about him individually. let's say it's through 2014. he's 40 years old. he's been challenged by injuries. how much game will he have left in him at that point? >> his contract takes him through the year, 2017. the extension he signed back in 2007. so, there was an assumption that rodriguez was going to play until he was 42 years old. right now he's gone through two hip surgeries in the last two years, but he's still, you look at him as a player. he's still a little rusty in the minors but
in the penalty that mlb imposed but you didn't deny the charges. do you deny that you used p.e.d.s? >> we'll have a form to discuss all of that and we'll talk about it then. >> alex, do you feel that this is a witch hunt by major league baseball? >> a what? >> a witch hunt. >> i don't want to discuss that. i don't know what the motivation is for any of this. but i'm going to respect the process. i feel good that we have an opportunity to do that in the right platform. and we're going to state our case. >> what are the likelihoods that during the process of the appeal and you see the evidence that major league baseball may have against you, that you would drop that appeal and go on as life goes on? >> i'm sorry, repeat the first part of that question. >> what are the chances that during the appeal, you see the evidence that major league baseball has against you, they have to show you that, is it likely that you would back away from the appeal and go on and take the punishment? >> if i'm understanding your question properly, we've seen everything. again, there will be a time and a place for all of
